How'd You Do That??? / Re: Google Maps
« on: May 26, 2011, 01:42:25 AM »
Make sure to fill out your google profile completely.  Google rewards this greatly.  Also, make sure to fill out your google places page with all of the info you can, and like stated above, try to get your customers to rate you on your google places page.  (consider putting the link to your places page on an invoice for easy customer access.)

Google maps are a great tool, and should be utilized to the full extent available.  You can add your URL, and social media links to the places page too.

The Business Of Upholstery / Looking at an expasion on offerings.
« on: May 26, 2011, 01:33:53 AM »
We are looking to expand on the offerings we have.

Do any of you upholsterers have any suggestions for what you would like to see, on a site like ours.  www.exoticleatherco.com 

  • Products
  • Layout
  • Pictures
  • Anything?

Thanks in advance!

The best thing I've found with Twitter is when we have a recognizable brand, like for instance, we will be adding the Sunbrella Fabric by the yard shortly, and when we do, we will twitter about it.  Then anyone on twitter who talks about sunbrella will be able to search us out.

Also, we can share what was for dinner... Although that's the reason a lot of people disregard Twitter as a viable means of getting the word out!

Just wondering who may be using Twitter?

We do http://twitter.com/#!/exoticleatherco

Mostly, we just have Twitter linked to our FaceBook page, and anything we post to the wall of facebook, is automatically posted to our twitter.

Does anyone have a good experience with Twitter?

Thanks!

http://www.facebook.com/pages/MJ-Amsden-Furniture/196774853693607 is this your page?  If so, I'm on the "like" List as far as I can tell.

« on: April 26, 2011, 02:20:54 AM »
I just wanted to let you know that I have just added a line of products called Focus.

Many of the colors have an exact color match with leather and vinyl.  This is sooooo nice!

I'd appreciate any comments:

Page vs. Account

Facebook Page:  This is a page specifically set up for a business, product, or group.  You cannot become a friend of a page, but you can "Like" it.

An account is meant to be a personal account, not for businesses, although many businesses create a personal account with their business name.  You lose out on some features, but it's essentially the same.  One of the big features you lose out on is stat tracking to see what posts get the best responses and how many times the posts are displayed.

Create a page for you your business here: http://www.facebook.com/campaign/landing.php?placement=pgall&campaign_id=368885149649&extra_1=auto

And remember, Like Exotic Leather on FaceBook! @ http://www.facebook.com/pages/Exotic-Leather/196309480408942

We now "Like" You Pro Stitch Auto.  :-)

The http://www.facebook.com/pages/Exotic-Leather/196309480408942?ref=ts link is for the Exotic Leather FaceBook Page.  It's still new, but we would like to see more than the 5 "likes" we have now!

Thank you Mike, we "like" you!

It would be helpful for anyone with a business facebook page to post a link on this site so we can like you easier!

The difference between a personal page and business page is that anyone can see the business page.  You don't have to "like" it or even be a friend before viewing the photos and seeing what there is to see on the page for the business page, whereas on a personal page, anyone can only view it if they are already a friend with you.

That said, Please like our Facebook page, and we will like yours!

We have a facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Exotic-Leather/196309480408942?ref=ts

The benefit to having one as an upholsterer (we are a supplier) would be to post lots of pictures of your jobs, and also you could encourage your customers to "like" your page with out having to "friend" your personal FaceBook page.  This eliminates those annoying status posts like what was for dinner and focuses the page on your business and can act as a good place to send people to get references without them calling your customers.

Business pages also rank well on google if they are utilized fully with contact info and news and recent jobs and such!  (Personal pages are usually blocked by search engines via personal prefs.)

My designer (curtis@curtissmeltzer.com) makes facebook pages, and can even update and market them the same as a website.

I'd say it's closer to a vinyl, but as the description states, it's actually 100% cellulose.  It's a truly woven fabric, not a print or embossing technique.  Could be used for outdoor furniture or any number of other uses.

13
We have been getting some interest in this woven fabric call Raphia? http://www.exoticleatherco.com/specialties/index.html but I am hoping to see some pictures of it in actual use.

Please let me know if any of you upholstery officianados have used it or a product similar.

Thanks!

General Discussion / Re: facebook versus web site
« on: March 22, 2011, 01:03:23 AM »
My website designer has built my website, and made facebook pages for a few of my products.

The website, as many others have mentioned has a lot of advantages.

If you have your own website, there is a chance for 'metadata' (behind the scenes) information in all of your pictures and pages that will go a lot further than facebook will to enhance your search engine rankings!

You should definitely look into doing both.

My designer can host your site for $75/yr which includes a domain name and unlimited bandwidth and storage for pictures, video, and whatever else you are interested in. He is affordable, charging about 1/2 the national average for design.

Contact him at curtis@curtissmeltzer.com
